by Abigail L. Phillips

As conservativism, including a push from groups such as Moms for Liberty and No Left Turn in Education, leads to an increase in books being challenged and libraries being threatened, librarians and library workers across the U.S. are coming to terms with what this means for themselves and their libraries.
